Spanish fans in Munich: La Roja supporters set sights on Euro 2024 final

Despite notable absentees from the squad for their match against France in the Euro 2024 semi-final, Spanish supporters will be confident that their side can secure a victory in Munich on Tuesday, July 9.

It is the first that that La Roja fans will have been in Munich this tournament, and they will be hoping to make good memories as they take on a France team that has, so far, been unable to show its best form.

Spain, on the other hand, has been one of the standout performers of the competition and as a result, their supporters have brought a party-like atmosphere to every city they have visited in Germany so far.

How many Spanish fans will be in Munich?

Both Spain and France have been given a ticket allocation of around 7,000 for the match, but don't be fooled by that low number, there will be a far higher number of Spanish fans in Munich ahead of the game.

Football is the most popular sport in the country, and with the side being very successful in the modern era – we all remember their famous treble between the years of 2008 and 2012 which saw La Roja win the European Championships on either side of their World Cup triumph in 2010 – and their fanbase will be hoping for more glory as a result.

Where will Spanish fans in Munich sit at the Allianz Arena?

All tickets provided to the respective nations in every knockout round of the tournament have been ‘fans first' tickets – and these will be what the vast majority of Spanish fans in attendance will be in possession of come matchday.

As they do in every stadium, ‘fans first' tickets grant the holder access to a seat behind one of the goals at the Allianz Arena. The exact setup is still unknown, but expect a sea of red at one end of the pitch as La Roja supporters inside the ground do everything they can to help their side progress to the final.

Euro 2024 Fan zones for Spanish fans in Munich

Olympiapark's Euro 2024 fan zone in Munich appears to be one of the best places to watch football at the whole tournament, stadiums aside.

The venue's motto at Euro 2024 has been “Munich celebrates Europe”, and as such, you can expect to find a wide range of traditional food stalls from all over the continent. So, if you're looking for some home comforts to ease any pre-game jitters, this is the place for you.

In addition to excellent food, the site also offers live music, an open-air cinema, comedy and a screening of every game at Olympic Lake.

Getting to the Allianz Arena: A travel guide for Spanish fans in Munich

Unfortunately, unless you are someone who enjoys a good hike, walking from Munich to the Allianz Arena is not going to be an option you wish to take. Located just over 6 miles away from the city centre, the journey would take around 2-and-a-half hours to complete – that's if you have the energy needed to get there.

Public transport, then, appears to be the more suitable option for the vast majority of fans attending the game.

The train will likely be the best choice, and from the city centre, you will first want to get on the S-Bahn from Munich Main Station and head towards Marienplatz. From there, a switch to the underground service will be required and you will need to get on the U6 line and exit the service at Frottmaning.

A far shorter 15-minute walk will then take you from the station to the Allianz Arena, giving the journey a total travel time of approximately 39 minutes.
